Monaco vs Leipzig – UEFA Champions League – UEFA Champions League: In group G, everything is wide open regarding who advances to the next stage…
When these teams start the match, they’ll already know the result of the match between Besiktas and FC Porto.
That might influence this match, but in my opinion, there’s one interpretation that can already be made before the match, about the attacking approach that both teams usually have and will look to adopt in this match as well.
Both of these teams are team that score a lot of goals in their respective leagues and that also have defensive weaknesses, so I expect a match with a lot of goals.
Monaco need the 3 points more than ever. They are currently in last place of the group with only 2 draws and the only way for them to advance to the round of 16 is by getting 2 wins on the last 2 matches, that is, if FC Porto fails to win in Turkey.
The French will have the initiative and will look to score early. They are a very attacking team, and a proof of that is the 35 goals they scored in the 13 league matches.
In the Champions League, they scored in every match except on their disastrous exhibition against FC Porto.
Monaco, for this match, won’t be able to count with Lemar, but on the attacking front they have Falcao and Jovetic, two world class players that can score against any team.
On Leipzig’s side, they also can’t count with the striker Augustin, but the star Tim Werner is in great form and will play in the attack, alongside Keita and Bruma who will support them.
Leipzig has 5 points in the competition, and they’ve scored in every match except in Turkey, against Besiktas.
In the league, the Germans are coming off a 2-2 draw in Leverkusen, but what is important to highlight is the record of 20 goals scored and 15 goals conceded in 12 matches.
These are two teams that score and concede a lot, so this match has every condition to be a match with goals, just like it happened on the 1st round of the group, where the duel between these two teams finished with a 1-1 draw.
Monaco vs Leipzig – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Monaco are favourites, but the Germans need to get some points here to postpone the decision to the last round at home.
Both teams will look to win and that will open up spaces on the defences that are already fragile by nature, especially Leipzig’s on set pieces.
Both teams’ attacking front has quality and they don’t need many chances to score, so I believe that the Over 2.5 Goals will happen and that both teams will score, just like they did in the 1st round.
